Call of Duty: Warzone is getting a new Pacific map

Warzone will get an amazing map update based in the Pacific with the addition of the Caldera map. This map will be available from December 2 and is going to mark the beginning of the Warzone Pacific era. Players who own Vanguard will get 24-hour early access.

Raven Software confirmed this development way back in September and mentioned original locations and new engine technology for the upcoming era; the new engine is an updated version of the Modern Warfare engine.

Call of Duty is also launching an LTM called Operation: Flashback which will allow players to reminisce about the past 18 months in Verdansk. Call of Duty has made a special arrangement to mark this occasion and will be rewarding players with an emblem and an animated calling card on winning.

The Verdansk map will be destroyed on November 30 before the official launch of the Caldera map on December 2. With the launch of Season 1 of the Pacific Era, players will gain access to the Vanguard Royale playlist that will feature new content such as biplanes and anti-air trucks.
